ARMINTER S.A.M., MONACO
Armements Internationales, Société Anonyme Monégasque (Arminter S.A.M.), a Monaco company established in 1974 by a Genoese brokerage group, was acquired by Eugénio Tuillier in 1987. As noted above, three tankers were then transferred from Medsea to the new company. Further acquisitions were made in almost every year up to 1999 when ten tankers were in operation. The Group was then ranked third in the world as operator of 25-30,000 dwt tankers in Northern Europe.
